Pregnancy after miscarriage
I lost my first baby when I was 16 weeks pregnant due to an umbilical cord accident last year. I am currently pregnant and am really struggling with my response to "is this your first baby"... I delivered my precious Henry but didn't get to take him home. For people who know me, they know about him and loved him with our family so it is always people who don't know me or are just an acquaintance. I feel trapped when I'm asked that question because I don't always feel emotionally prepared to share that experience with these people but then immediately feel like I'm not honoring my first baby when I don't tell them about what happened and just respond "yes" to their question. Does anyone here have any similar experiences dealing with this?
